Phil was amazing! Gwen and Phil were very responsive and easy to get a hold of. We had to reschedule our initial ceremony due to COVID and it was super easy to work with them to find a convenient time to reschedule. Phil did a great job at keeping the ceremony quick and beautiful. Great experience!Sent on 10/19/2020

From the moment I contacted Gwen and Phil, my experience was outstanding. We had a very intimate outdoor ceremony at our favorite hiking trail. As soon as Phil started speaking, I knew that his words would transform the humble gathering into a moment that could only be described as magical. His presence and poetry gave us the perfect ceremony.Sent on 09/18/2020
Thank you Phil and Gwen!

Very professional and helpful!
With our officiant unable to make it at the last minute, we were pretty hesitant when finding someone else to officiate our wedding. Phil and Gwen were recommended by two of our other vendors, so that made us feel good! Right away Gwen and Phil were so so helpful and willing to help out at the last minute! Phil did a fantastic job from start to finish making our day so special and sentimental. We would highly recommend him to anyone else getting married! Thank you again.Sent on 09/16/2020

What a great couple and team! Very genuine and down to earth.
Phil is such a kind man with a great sense of humor. Him and his wife are very organized and punctual. He was a great help with helping us organize the ceremony and having the biblical verses that we wanted. Highly recommend using them for a wedding. Thank you Phil. I pray you continue to bless others as you did for us on our wedding.Sent on 08/29/2020

Best Part of Our Wedding!
We came across Phil and Gwen because they were the preferred vendors through our wedding venue. They were absolutely amazing to work with. Gwen reached out to us to schedule a time to meet Phil so he could get to know us and what we wanted our ceremony to be all about. Once we met him we were over the moon with their services, there's definitely a reason they are Stone Bridge Manors preferred vendor. He took time to understand who our other vendors were and plan out our ceremony. He is very humorous and really fit the feeling we wanted of our ceremony perfectly. We have been to weddings in the past that were a little too religious for our liking and he made sure to walk us through our different options and readings. Easily our favorite part of our wedding!Sent on 02/16/2020

The Perfect Wedding Minister/Officiant
My wife and I were able to easily work with Gwen in tailoring our ceremony to the way we wanted. She provide essential insight and tips, based on her vast experience, to make our ceremony even more amazing! Several of our guest commented that our minister/officiant was amazing and that they loved our ceremony.Sent on 10/21/2019

We are so grateful for Phil!!
Phil was amazing. You can tell he is an expert in his field. The ceremony was so important to us and we wanted to make sure we found someone who paid attention to the little details, cared to ask how we envisioned our ceremony going and made us feel comfortable and Phil exceeded our expectations. He made our ceremony flow seamlessly and we couldn’t be more grateful. We are so happy we found Phil to officiant our special day. We can not recommend him more!!Sent on 10/24/2019

While we were planning our destination wedding, we ran into great difficulty with finding the perfect officiant for our wedding day. After some searching, we came across Arizona Ministers and knew we needed to contact them. After a wonderful phone call, we knew immediately that we wanted to have Phil officiate our wedding. Our experience with both Phil and Gwen was professional, positive and seamless especially with planning everything from a far. Phil did an amazing job on our wedding day and had the perfect balance of combining our values with his words. Phil was personal, meaningful, natural and his overall disposition was beyond genuine. We even had guests come up to us thinking we had known Phil for years! There is nothing we would have changed with how our ceremony went and it was everything we hoped (and more!).Sent on 11/26/2019

The Best of the Best
We had the pleasure of being married by Gwen Waring. While we had not known Pastor Gwen well, we were very impressed with her services. We had our initial meeting with Pastor Gwen and she was so personable, we felt as though we had known her for ages. During the ceremony, she conveyed our message of love to our attendees in the most simplistic and caring manner. We had attendees approach us saying "they loved our minister...how long have we been going their church." When I shared that we had only recently met, they were surprised at our well she know US and made the message so personal. I'd highly recommend their services.Sent on 10/15/2019

Phil was amazing and the wedding service was perfect!
We were planning a wedding in Paradise Valley (and we lived in Kentucky.) Phil and Gwen were so easy to work with throughout the entire process. They communicated efficiently and clearly. Prior to our arrival, Phil and I had a conference call to get to know each other and so that I could share a bit about myself and my future husband. It was a great touch, and the wedding ended up being absolutely perfect. It literally was the most stress free and perfect day that we have ever had or possibly could have imagined for our wedding day. Phil's words were spot on during the wedding, and he was such a great sport during photos even though the early morning heat was already at 105 degrees. Highly recommend him and his company for any and all weddings.Sent on 07/19/2019

Thank you so much for your incredible service in officiating our wedding, Gwen! You have been so warm and accommodating to our needs, and made us feel special! We are so happy to have found the perfect woman for the job! Wouldn't have been the same without you! (perfect!)
Thank you again!

Phil was fantastic! My husband and I wanted a short and sweet ceremony for our destination wedding, and Phil gave us exactly what we were looking for! Phil had every ceremony detail well thought out and planned prior to our big day. This attention to detail made our wedding day even more special! Great communication, quick response, very professional, and extremely polite. Phil was there for us whenever we needed him - before and after the wedding. We highly recommend Arizona Ministers!Sent on 04/08/2019

Gwen provided exceptional service and guidance for our wedding ceremony. She walked us through the ceremony steps multiple times beforehand. She fully respected our wishes for the type of ceremony we wanted. Even better, she provided helpful guidance for our vows and the types of readings to consider. Many of our guests complimented after the ceremony shared their compliments for how great Gwen was as our officiant.We would recommend her in every respect!Sent on 04/09/2019

Amazing wedding at an amazing price
Phil did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. He was friendly and personable and he respected our wishes for everything about the ceremony. He and Gwen guided us through the process, presenting options we would not otherwise have considered. We originally had planned to do an elopement at the Grand Canyon, but after discussion with Phil we ended up deciding to do it outdoors in Sedona with Cathedral Rock in the background, and we could not be happier with the decision. We had a brief, intimate ceremony in a truly beautiful place. Communication throughout was excellent. I literally do not have a single negative word to say about the services Phil and Gwen provided.Sent on 03/28/2019

Phil delivered a wonderful speech while smoothly working through issues with audio equipment supplied by another vendor. He kept things light but touching, and we would recommend him to anyone who asked!Sent on 03/07/2019

Phil performed the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding! He made the experience so personal and meaningful, unlike the standard monotone speech you expect to hear at weddings. Phil is very sweet and accommodating. He and his wife, Gwen, were excellent about keeping in contact during the planning process and ensuring everything was ready to go ahead of time. For a beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony, I highly recommend Arizona Ministers.Sent on 01/04/2019

Phil Waring was wonderful!
We are so happy we chose Arizona Ministers to officiate our wedding. Phil Waring was wonderful! Phil took time to get to know us and customize our ceremony based on our personal story of how we met and what brought us together. As we talked with Phil, I was amazed at how much Phil and I had in common and how well he understood me and my bride to be. I believe things happen for a reason and it was as if God placed Phil in our lives at that moment to make our wedding perfect! Phil is an experienced professional but he is also very warm and personable. I would highly recommend Phil Waring and Arizona Ministers to officiate your wedding ceremony.Sent on 11/25/2018

Gwen was amazing!
My wife and I had an intimate destination (we're from Canada) wedding ceremony at a private residence in Scottsdale, Arizona. The vision for our ceremony was 'romantic' and 'non-religious', and Gwen executed this beautifully. She provided us with some guidance on the words and readings to choose, and she also memorized and recited a quote/reading we provided her the day before our ceremony. Gwen's suggestions, planning, and impeccable attention to detail made us feel as relaxed as possible in the lead up to our ceremony. This was especially important to us as we planned our Scottsdale wedding from our home in Canada. It was a pleasure to meet her, and we're very appreciative for how she enriched our special and memorable day.Sent on 11/01/2018

Phil was professional, personal, and a pleasure to have perform our marriage ceremony. When we met with him for our initial session, his humor and light hearted nature made him a natural pick for us. He and Gwen thought out every detail and made sure that our day went as smooth as possible. They are definitely a blessing!Sent on 10/24/2018
